Proposed Updates to RRS and URRS Now Open for Public Comment

TSLAC is now accepting public comments on proposed revisions to the Texas State Records Retention Schedule (RRS) and University Records Retention Schedule (URRS). The proposed revisions were published in the March 11 issue of the Texas Register. The schedules posted in the Texas Register are clean versions and do not show all revisions. To aid in your review, you may view marked up versions of the schedules and detailed change lists on our website.

If you have comments on the proposed changes to the RRS and URRS, you can submit them to Megan Carey, Manager, Records Management Assistance, Box 12927, Austin, TX, 78711; or by email to rules@tsl.texas.gov. Public comments are due by close of business on April 10, 2022.

Any comments received will be presented to our Commission at a future meeting.  We appreciate your assistance in ensuring that our state retention schedules are accurate, fair, and useful for the state agencies and public universities we serve.

  1. How do record retention laws matter? They are ignored.

    Records retention is not a big deal with Tax Appraisal Districts. Despite the AG banning Gmail in his offices out of privacy fears, many appraisal districts and I think most contracted appraisers use throwaway gmail.com, yahoo.com, and other freebie, off-the-radar, email accounts for taxpayer communication. I’ve been asked to send bank records to gmail accounts!

    For more information, you might contact Austin County Appraisal District at austincad@gmail.com. That’s the email address on their official web site.

    They might be busy. You could also contact sansabacad@gmail.com, another address from an Appraisal District’s home page.

    There are many others, too, particularly if you count all the contractors using Hillary-style back-channel email.

    If you want to contact me, I can be reached at limestonecad@gmail.com. I’m not associated with taxation, I was raised better than that. I just figured if Texas counties can use unofficial, undocumented, gmail accounts with cad in the name, I can too. Besides, I’m into computer aided design. With a wink to the TSLAC enforcers who’ve said they won’t enforce retention law against appraisal districts in violation, computer aided design is a cad of a different kind.

    ‘Course, we all know limestonecad@gmail.com is a cheery “hello” to government agencies who don’t particularly care if the government follows its own laws.

    Y’all have a nice day!
